Casting for Jose Padilha‘s remake of RoboCop just keeps on going, with what feels like a new exciting addition every week.
Newly signed on is Jackie Earle Haley, who will be playing a character named Maddox, a military trainer for the cyborg cop.
RoboCop stars Joel Kinnaman in the lead, as a cop who’s nearly killed on duty and turned into a half man, half machine super cop created as part of a new initiative to really crack down on crime in the city.
Haley is best know for his Oscar-nominated role in Little Children, as well as his fanboy favorite performance as Rorschach in Watchmen. He’s also appeared in A Nightmare on Elm Street and Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, and will next be seen in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln.
The rest of RoboCop‘s impressive cast includes Gary Oldman, Hugh Laurie, Samuel L. Jackson, and Abbie Cornish.
